* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[SeanConnery James Bond]] is now a Lithuanian nuclear ballistic missile submarine captain. Doubly hilarious because canonically Bond had been aboard a submarine among his service in World War Two, and even makes a comment to the effect of how submarines are growing more luxurious. He now gets to command the world's largest sub!
** [[Characters/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Dr. Crusher]] is Jack Ryan's wife.
** Captain Tupelov is [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Bootstrap Bill Turner]].
** [[Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff Ed Rooney]] moonlights as a former submarine captain and current engineer when he's not the principal of a high school.
** The pilot talking about "blowing chunks" is "Gus" one of the guys bowling with Phil in ''Film/GroundhogDay''.
** Borodin apparently did get to Montana [[Film/JurassicPark where he dug up dinosaurs.]]
** The ''Red October'''s doctor was once a ''[[Creator/TimCurry Sweet Transvestite...]]''
** Why is the Ambassador sweating so much when just the previous year he had [[Film/LethalWeapon2 brazenly told a cop they couldn't even give him a parking ticket]]?
** [[Series/TheNanny Niles]] is a captain on USS Enterprise.
** Jonesy was the original lead of the stage version of ''Theatre/SixDegreesOfSeparation''.
** [[Film/{{Gettysburg}} General Armistead]] went into politics after the war.

* ActorAllusion: Creator/GatesMcFadden playing [[Characters/StarTrekTheNextGeneration a doctor with a husband named Jack]].



** The USS Reuben James (FFG-57) wasn't commissioned until 1986.
** In the scene introducing Jack Ryan, he is preparing for a trip to the United States. At one point, he puts a copy of the United States Naval Institute Proceedings into his briefcase. The issue in question was a special issue focusing on submarines and anti-submarine warfare, making it a good fit for the movie--except for the minor little detail that it was the October 1987 issue...

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Tom Clancy really struggled to get the book published, dealing with massive publisher disinterest. He finally tried taking it to the Naval Institute Press, for whom he had previously written a number of nonfiction articles, and they agreed to print it as their first-ever foray into fiction. The novel turned into a surprise bestseller after President UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan read it and loved it.

* BackedByThePentagon: The scenes on the flight deck were shot on the actual ''Enterprise''. Scott Glenn (Mancuso) also spent a month aboard ''USS Salt Lake City'' where he was treated as though he was the commanding officer. According to director John [=McTiernan=] he came back completely different, very soft-spoken and calm, with a manner he described as being similar to a college president. The Navy was fully onboard for the movie because they were hoping ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'' would do for the submarine service what ''Film/TopGun'' had done for Naval aviation. In a way it worked, the crew of the ''real'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Dallas_%28SSN-700%29 USS Dallas]] adopted the films tagline, "The Hunt is On" as the boats unofficial motto.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCastShowoff: Alec Baldwin loves doing impressions, something he'd do more of in ''Series/ThirtyRock''.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/KevinCostner turned down the role of Jack Ryan. Creator/HarrisonFord had also turned down the role, because he felt the script focused more on Ramius than Ryan, [[TheOtherDarrin but he would take the role]] for the sequels ''Film/PatriotGames'' and ''Film/ClearAndPresentDanger''.
